  • "One of the best places in the city to see traditional Jazz. Tip the band to request a song, but keep in mind they don't know any Slayer." - Conan O'Brien
  • The origins of performances here go back to the start of the 1960s. There was no dance floor & no food or drinks served - the focus was just on the music. The only products sold were jazz recordings.
  • A no-brainer. Go.
  • Jazz and drinks
  • Treme happened here. Sad to see it closed up in the first season, Preservation Hall was built in 1750 and is focused on preserving and protecting New Orleans Jazz.
  • Yes, long line and they don't have drinks. But it's an absolute must for true jazz lovers. Tip the band, request a song, relish in the experience.
  • Make sure to grab a Hurricane next door so that you'll have some refreshments while you wait in line.
  • This hall was created as a sanctuary, to protect and honor New Orleans Jazz! In honor of Black History, see noteworthy examples of African-Americans' accomplishments in Music:

  • O melhor jazz na cidade do jazz. Sem bebida, sem comida, apenas msica como nunca se ouve. $15 para entrar e tips para a banda. Chegue 1hora antes para pegar bons lugares. No deixe de ir!!!
  • A great testimony to American ingenuity: Jazz creates great things by pushing the rules while staying within them at the same time.
  • Here on a Friday night? Enjoy live, traditional New Orleans jazz. A ticket buys entry to one of three 45-minute sets a night. -Travel Editor
  • A classic jazz club that leaves pretensions at the door and favors an intimate setting and focused on great music. The house band plays three feet away from where youre sitting.
  • There's probably going to be a cover... and you won't find any alcohol either. Oh! and get there early if you want to sit... If you can stand all that... prepare yourself for some good music.
  • Too many locals haven't been. Tip the band. Request a song. "Blueberry Hill" gets me every time.
  • This place is a total tourist trap. You're paying $20 for a 45 minute set with an audience of people working their checklist. Go next door to Pat O'Brien's Piano Bar for a truly wonderful experience.
  • Music and only music! No drinks for food served. No dancing but it has got to be the best places to hear and see Jazz!
  • Show times at 8, 9 and 10...add 15 minutes.
